Description: The Krems Caricature Museum is the only museum for caricature, pictorial satire and critical graphics in the Austrian museum landscape to occupy a special position. The objective of the museum is to comprehensively deal with the topic of caricature and thus to establish caricature and pictorial satire as an essential part of the visual arts.

The exhibition activities, the cooperation in the construction of a caricature collection of the state of Lower Austria and the content-related, scientific work are the most important areas of responsibility in this context. In addition to the permanent presentation of Manfred Deix’s work and the exhibitions in the IRONIMUS Kabinett, which is devoted to political caricature, changing exhibitions are presented annually, which deal with historical topics and questions as well as contemporary caricature and critical graphics.

Dealing with different tendencies in caricature, introducing individual positions and presenting international and Austrian draftsmen and caricaturists make the Krems Caricature Museum a lively place for dealing with current issues of society as a whole, and thus one important place of cultural discourse.
